Isaiah 57:1-6 (New International Reader's Version)

View In My Bible
1 Those who are right with God die. And no one really cares about it. Men who are faithful to the LORD are swept away by trouble. And no one understands why that happens to those who do what is right. 2 Those who lead honest lives will enjoy peace and rest when they die. 3 The LORD says, "Come here, you children of women who practice evil magic! You are children of prostitutes and those who commit adultery. 4 Who are you making fun of? Who are you laughing at? Who are you sticking your tongue out at? You are people who refuse to obey me. You are just a bunch of liars! 5 You burn with sinful longing among the oak trees. You worship your gods by having sex under every green tree. You sacrifice your children in the valleys. You also do it under the cliffs. 6 You have chosen some of the smooth stones in the valleys to be your gods. You have joined yourselves to them. You have even poured out drink offerings to them. You have given grain offerings to them. So why should I take pity on you?
